Leza and the Eternal Serpent


Show Summary Details

Quick Reference

(Fipa/Tanzania)

Leza came to earth and asked who did not wish to die. Man and all the animals were asleep. Only the serpent was awake, and he promptly responded. That is why humans and all other animals die, and the serpent does not die unless it is killed. Every year the serpent changes its skin and so is renewed.
